Hospital Occupancy in Puerto Vallarta
Puerto Vallarta Naval Hospital is reporting 72% occupancy of beds for treating COVID-19 patients after nearly two weeks at 100. The local IMSS Hospital is reporting 78% occupancy in COVID-19 beds, and the General Hospital in Puerto Vallarta is reporting 88% occupancy. These occupancy rates are only in beds designated for the care of COVID-19. As occupancy increases, hospitals add more beds to their COVID units. A lower number of occupancy is likely due to new beds being designated for COVID-19, not fewer patients being treated.
